The kids and I went to my parent’s house and made molasses cookies.
Similar to this recipie, http://weelicious.com/2013/12/06/soft-and-sweet-molasses-roll-out-cookies/
After the kids selected the cookie cutters, we rolled out the dough and started cutting out cookies.
And baked them according to directions.
These cookies would make a good alternate to gingerbread, and they are good without frosting.
